and with all the other great cities of the world in a sister city relationship so dearly, we learn from each other, we send delegations to each other, we welcome each other to the city but in each and every instance, we are always thinking about ideas about how we can help each other and help regions improve, so i am excited to have met with the mayor just a few minutes ago to reaffirm our relationship and we'll sign that in a few moments to document that and to promise each other that we will continue this very great relationship and we could not have done it without the involvement of our private citizens, tom horn has led a fantastic group of volunteers on our sister city committee for paris and san francisco, and he's doing a marvelous job and this again reflects how our citizenry helps our city become a better city with these sister city relationships and again i want to thank you and the audience too who are volunteers in our -- i really, really thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating such a great part of our soul of our cities, and giving us the reasons why we can be an in
subsection(b) demonstrating or soliciting in certain city parks while other events are in progress. >> chair mar: supervisor wiener. >> supervisor wiener: thank you. this legislation repeals section 74.8(d) of the parks code which is outdated. this section applies to permitted events in seven parks in our city and provides specified locations where protests may occur. the implication being that they cannot occur anywhere else in the park. in the 30 years since the board of supervisors adopted this section, the configuration of these parks have changed, in some cases quite dramatically. as a result, this section is not only updated but it's difficult for park patrol and police officers to enforce it. for example, the section refers to a fountain in civic center that no longer exists, and it places a designated public assembly area for dolores park in the middle of the tennis courts, or what are now the tennis courts. this ordinance would delete these outdated provisions, and allow the city and rec and park to appropriately tailor any necessary time, place and manner restrictions on public ass
city in the world that runs cable cars. these cars right here are part of national parks system. in the early 1960's, they became the first roles monument. the way city spread changed with the invention of the cable car. >> people know in san francisco, first thing they think about is, let's go >> thank you, everyone, for coming. i welcome to the opening of scoots san francisco network. [applause]. >> thanks. today, we are opening our beta program to the san francisco public and with that, we are opening the world's first network of shared electric scooters. [applause]. >> there we go, we're back, okay, so before i tell you about our s*frs for san francisco, i want to introduce someone who has already made san francisco an even better place to live, mayor ed lee. there are two things about the mayor's work and his administration that are particularly important to scoot, the first is that mayor lee is working hard to make this city an even better place to start and grow a new business, and second, he's been a toothless support of electric vehicles to improve san francisco's envir
recovery being built in the city. the controller's office will do that, a deeper one also during the month of may. and depending how good it is, then we can make some improvements and invite other departments after that. so just to make you aware those are happening. if you have somebody that needs introduction to cost recovery training, again, we've probably been in touch with them already, but let us know if there's somebody who looks like that. >> thank you, peg. other announcements? >> maybe just a reminder about the [inaudible] >> thank you. >> will reopen monday, 5:00 a.m. >> thank you chief. yes. >> question -- i've heard there's going to be an early closure of the golden gate bridge on may 1. [laughter] >> thank you, ken. >> i want to start off by thanking you for your kudos. monday tuesday of this week -- boma is an excellent partner and has also helped us get the word out to your members on what to expect. you've clearly done a lot of groundwork on how to respond, to make sure that the activities are facilitated and not problematic. so i thank you for that. we have been meeting w
the city side of it. and i want to thank, of course, all the racing teams that have made the decision to start racing in this wonderful day of hours. that will be, again, the first time ever that you will be able to see these races from the shore. the book to use the technology to get the excitement down, right on the boat itself. with that, i would like to welcome, and then i look forward not only to this race and next year, for the louis vuitton cup and america's cup, but i look for to announcing that this is, in addition to the third fourth america cup, it will be the san francisco america's cup. thank you and welcome. >> thank you. >> you probably think you know all about the exploratorium. but have you ever been after dark? did you know there was a monthly party called after dark? science mixes with culture and adults mix with other adults. no kids allowed. every week there is a different theme. to tell us about the themes is melissa alexander. tell us about some of the previous themes we have had. >> we have had sex ploration, sugar, red, blue. many things. >> what is the theme
administration to create the electric vehicle infrastructure for the city and began the conversation and the collaboration with the other counties to bring an electric vehicle corridor. it signals our efforts to support the creation of infrastructure to the electric vehicle industry. of course we have encouraged the private automobile creators to join us. today is a wonderful opportunity to do that with a bmw. any of you who noticed the labels in this city, you will certainly noticed the popularity of bmw as a corporation, not only a great company but one that is also on the cutting edge of the use of technology. i want to thank them and welcome them to not only the electric vehicle stage, which they have been working on, but also to this great program they are about to introduce, the drive now and park now technology. joined -- joining us in the car sharing program for their members who want to use bmw products. this idea of cars sharing has been a part of san francisco's objective in creating a more sharing economy. like many other cities, we are congested in our parking. parking i
with the city attorney around options, they are fairly limited in that while we do want to find a suitable, formal moment of issuing of the report, the problem is if we do it collectively, that it constitutes a meeting. once it constitutes a meeting, we are back where we started again. so our options are, a, we hold a press conference with less than a quorum present, which therefore does not constitute a meeting and we issue it, or to report its issued and a less public, less formal, less visible way and just gets distributed to committee and habitants. discussion? >> i have a suggestion. i suggest we hold a press conference with share mcdonnell and vice chair lam, and maybe a couple other task force members would be willing to participate in that so we would have at least a public presentation of the final map and the result. mr. mcdonnell: thank you. mr. alonso: or perhaps we could have john did a press conference on his own, provided he has time, since he is not an official member of the task force. mr. mcdonnell: okay, and obviously we would have to explore that with him. we cannot com

[applause] with any educational institution that has value as our city college, not only did we work with those that are currently involved with them, but we worked as a city family. there is no way to express at this time the need to have this a family together to support our city college. so also i have representatives of the comptroller's office, then rosenfield, mickey callahan, the human resources divisions that are here today, nadia from our public financing, and certainly kate howard and the budget staff, all here to help me help the city college to make sure they continue in the best tradition that we have in our city. after all, they need our help, our support. they will not be able to accomplish it all by themselves, so no less t
the lease of property at 901 rankin street. authorizing the city administrator or designee to execute documents and make certain modifications and take certain actions in furtherance of this resolution. supervisor chu: this item is brought to is jointly by the mayor but also by supervisor cohen and the supervisor will join us shortly to say some words on behalf of this. until she comes, would you like to have any opening comments? >> good morning. and the acting director of real estate. when i began my position here in san francisco, the first project i was handed by my director was to move forward with the san francisco wholesale produce market least, knowing that in six short years, the 50- year lease was coming to an end. unfortunately, we started this six or seven years ago. there have been many interested parties working on this and balancing a number of interests. those interests or the economic development desires of the city, the ability of wholesalers to afford the rents that have revitalized market, concerns of institutional financing sources in a very tight credit environme
at it, we're putting in place an awful lot of things that shape what our city looks like in the future, how our city operates, how we interact with our city. as i started to think about that, i thought, you know, the number of major infrastructure projects going on in our immediate region now are probably -- there are probably more dollars and energy going into that than any time since bart was put through the city. you have the eastern span of the bay bridge. you have the transbay terminal. you have the central subway project. you have the improvement realignment of doyle drive. all of these things are part of the hard wiring of our city that is going to influence the way in which we all interact with it. over the last, say, five to ten years, we have watched as development and interest and people have moved south of market, into mission bay, below that we now that is continuing and we now have projects on the table like the pier 70 project, which ten years ago no one would have thought was a viable mixed-use project, because nobody went there. and that part of it is no longer true.
the officers and thank them and tell them we're very appreciative of them as first-responders in the city. >> i was in new york when it happened and it's always odd for me to think back to that time. so onto some news. you have a lot to talk about today and we're going to try to keep it as organized as possible. you have announcements and policy discussions and i think we should start with you -- i just love the fact, last time you were here on stage, the only office he had run for was class president of high school. >> that is right. >> now you have two elections behind you, one as mayor as well. it's just amazing. you have another one -- how long are you mayor? >> four-year term. >> so you have three more years? >> yes, and then re-election. >> and you want to get some stuff done and some of that is around innovation. and you have called this the innovation capital of world. >> unabashedly. >> i have seen the banner at the airport. >> oh, gosh of course. >> tell me about your plans >> when i was inaugurated in january, i had gone through pretty intense re-election and
the importance of our city college to us as a city, i also want to make sure that we recognize as a family the serious challenges that are before the trustees and before the interim chancellor as we would care to meet them. there will be very difficult and important decision that will need to be made in order to address the recommendations that are set forth by the accreditation committee. there will also be a lot of good faith negotiation that will have to happen in order to protect our city college. but tough decisions and reforms are what city college needs at this time. and we must first protect and serve the students of city college and make sure they remain have our number one priority. but any improvement means change from the status quo. it will also mean decisions about reform, decisions reflecting strong leadership and good governance that will improve our city college system and protect this accreditation. to that end, i have given very careful consideration about who to appoint to fill this vacancy at such a critical time in our city college history. we need somebody who shares
a second home in a fancy condo buildings in this city. you can have an extra count that you want to rent out, and you can find access to travelers from all over the world who also do not have the resources to spend money on a $200 hotel bill who want to say on your couch, and that is really democratizing travel, not just access to travel, but also access to the tourism economy that flourishes in the city. >> i just want to address the technology point really quickly. we try and emphasize the human aspect of this, whether it is on the website or whether it is through the iphone app. other people use a device that we built, that lets you share a car more conveniently by letting the richer unlock the car with their smartphone. even with that, we really try to connect the people who are sharing because a lot of people to accept rentals just with the kit and may never meet the people they are sharing with. we tried to encourage the parties to get to know each other, trying to just display your interest or so many things i can think of that our websites due to show who this person really is. t

[applause] it is, i think, california's finest example of a true, urban community college. it serves 90,000 students, it has nine major maker of campuses, and more than 100 institutional instruction sites throughout the city of san francisco. and it has that because it wants to make itself available to every resident of san francisco and make it accessible by transportation, by bike or by foot, but also and most importantly, it becomes accessible because it is affordable and it is high quality. it has 815 full-time staff over 1035 p

. like many other cities, we are congested in our parking. parking is really a challenge in the city. for people who own vehicles, and introducing people to car- sharing programs and ideas have been a wonderful experiment for us. as you know, we have been working to create not only public garages but also in congested neighborhoods. when a private company like bmw registers their interest in car- sharing, that is a complement to the direction we are heading to be morris -- more sustainable. i want to think bmw for being here. we are in negotiations to get us into our fleet so we can utilize. unless we do it with the latest technology, people will not appreciate the mayor driving a bmw. [laughter] but we are doing it for the right reasons. i want to showcase that as we lead this country into a thought process, a challenge that our major cities, our urban settings can have solutions to our parking problems, have sustainable mobility as part of our alternatives in the vehicles and car-sharing as a principle for us to join our automobile makers as well as our vehicle owners and rentals a
